Sleepy Hollow



The colors blazed like her heart did when she was alive. Planted in memory of, it was as if she were feeding it giving it life herself. Her husband knew that wasn’t possible through a bolted coffin weighted by an iron crucifix. “No messing around this time. She needs to stay dead.” He brushed tears away wishing the memories would cease.

“Sweet darling, how hard it was for you but you missed my heart.”

Startled he spun completely around… no one.

“Will you leave me like this for an eternity?”

Face blanched he stood there. “I didn’t… I didn’t!”
